Karl Lagerfeld has been using Shu Uemura makeup for over 20 years—just not in the way you might think. Aside from his main gig at Chanel, the designer is also known for his illustrations, which often grace the fashion house’s invitations and press kits. Those illustrations are always created with Shu Uemura makeup. He told WWD he uses the brand’s products “because other manufacturers do not offer such beautiful colors.”
Now, Lagerfeld is releasing a limited edition holiday collection with the legendary Japanese brand. The collection, Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura, will launch in November at 400 Shu Uemura doors internationally. The designer will be responsible for choosing colors and packaging for the collection (he recently created nifty packaging for a unique perfume) and according to WWD has already shot the ad campaign. We can’t wait to see what he’s planning. Are you excited for Karl’s latest collaboration?
There’s no way we can wait until November to get our hands on some Shu Uemura. Find our favorite products from the brand in the Birchbox Shop.
